The Federal Emergency Management Agency continues to monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as it relates to COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is encouraging organizations to promote social distancing, hold meetings via videoconferencing, reduce non-essential travel, and adjust or postpone events and gatherings. We also continue to evaluate the local and national situation and will provide regular updates.

Students will be notified in advance concerning the status of their on-campus course offering.

FEMA Emergency Planning for Higher Education Training

Colleges and Universities are not immune to tragedies and catastrophic incidents, but with community building, planning, training and exercises our nations campuses can become resilient. The risks that academic campuses face encompass both natural and man-made disasters.

Through rigorous research and collaboration with state, local, and private-sector partners, the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) has determined that an effective step toward creating resilience is to develop all-hazard exercise-based training courses. The courses developed and delivered highlight the importance of comprehensive planning as well as the important relationships that need to be established during a response to emergencies involving institutions of higher education. Below are links to EMI’s current offerings

If you have a resource that you would like to share for campus safety, please contact us at FEMA-HiEd@fema.dhs.gov to see about adding it to this page.
